A DOG sitter has been caught throwing a puppy around a living room on the horrified owner’s secret security camera.
The woman, who has not been named, had been hired to watch Labrador Lucy by Amanda Roy and her husband, who live in Victorville, California.
But the couple were horrified to see the woman slamming their dog to the floor after receiving a motion alert from a security camera on their phone.
The puppy lays stunned for a second before struggling to its feet, stumbling around while the sitter watches.
The husband was able to yell at the women via the system and tell he to leave.
She apologised and left the couple’s home.
Lucy was checked over by a vet and had not suffered any injuries, but Animal Control is now looking into the incident.
Speaking to local outlet ABC7, Amanda said: “It’s heartbreaking because the reason we use a pet sitter is because we love our pet and we don’t want to leave her unattended for very long because she is a baby.
“So we trusted someone to come into our home and look after a pet that we consider a family member.”
The puppy sitter had been hired through the Rover app.
A statement issued by the company said: “The activity depicted in this video is shocking and appalling.
“We have permanently deactivated this sitter from our platform and will continue to investigate.
“Any incident of this nature is extremely rare on our platform, and we take it very seriously.
